Suraphong Sukyam stated that police officers found the man lying deceased beside a bed with his legs and arms tied up.

The victim’s room is located on the sixth floor of the hotel, whose name was withheld pending further investigation. Chu was found face-down with signs of possible foul play, said Pol. Col. Suraphong.


Upon police inspection of the man’s room, several items were found scattered and ransacked. Police took pictures of the incident scene as evidence before transferring the body to the police hospital for a post-mortem examination.

Police have arrested a Myanmar man and a Cameroonian on suspicion that they were involved in the murder of a Taiwanese man, whose body was found in a hotel room on Udomsuk Road in the Phra Khanong district of Bangkok yesterday.

The two suspects have been identified as Myanmar national Zwe Lin Pyae and John Agbor from Cameroon.

Pol Lt-Gen Thiti Saengsawang, commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Bureau, said today that police are looking for a third suspect, a Caucasian, who is still at large.

The suspect claimed that he was hired by a Thai woman follow the Taiwanese man, adding that he later had an appointment with the woman and two other men at a coffee shop in the Thon Buri area, during which the woman told them that the Taiwanese man was rich and she wanted him robbed.

The second suspect, the Cameroonian, was arrested by the police later, but has denied any involvement.
